Members of Jerusalem Lodge No. 49 gathered on Dec. 7 to pay tribute to Willard Carter and Walter Wieland. Each has been a Ridgefield resident and Freemason for more than five decades.
An officer from the Grand Lodge of Connecticut, Joe Porco, presided over the evening’s ceremony. The lodge room was relatively full, given COVID-19 restrictions, with local members gathered to celebrate this golden anniversary and witness the presentation of certificates and pins.
